REMINDER! It’s official! We have once again been chosen to be one of the 22 locations across the USA where the Young Americans will be offering their summer music camp, July 11-15, 2017!

CLICK HERE: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

The Young Americans Summer Camp Tour will be traveling across the U.S. during the months of May, June, July, and August. A cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages all around the world. Our camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as a people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

Throughout the week, campers spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group as well as fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, acting, and performance. Additionally, the camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, and learn an incredible 1-hour variety show!

CLICK HERE: Meet the Current Cast

(We currently have 3 MSHS Graduates in the cast: Michael Kresnak, Hannah Kuipers and Gabrielle Gripton!)

Our Summer Camp Includes:

  • Duration: Our 5 days of camp feature 35+ hours of instruction with an instructor to student ration between 5:1 and 3:1. Students spend the first four days learning their show and taking classes. On the final day, students perform the 1-hour variety show they learned. The show day also features a special performance by The Young Americans as a ‘thank you’ for letting us be part of your community for the week.

  • The Show: Each camp culminates in a 2-hour performance for the community. We use music and the show as a tool to inspire teamwork, self-confidence, leadership, and growth within the performing arts.

  • The Camp: This high-energy, comprehensive performing arts camp covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more.

  • Classes, Self-Confidence, & Leadership: In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, song writing, and performance (acting and improv). Every class uses techniques that emphasize individuality and leadership.

  • Cultural Exchange: The Young Americans represent over 35 states throughout the U.S. and 20 countries across the world. Participants have time to ask questions and interact will our international performers to create a unique cultural exchange.

  • Bring Schools Together: A majority of the schools we work with invite schools within a large radius to come participate in the workshop event. Similar to a band/choir invitational, it’s a great way promote cross-school relationships.

    We are also going to be housing the Young Americans here in Muskegon. You can say $50 off your registration fee if you choose to homestay. You can sign up to be a homestay family when you register!

REMINDER! It’s official! We have once again been chosen to be one of the 22 locations across the USA where the Young Americans will be offering their summer music camp, July 11-15, 2017!

CLICK HERE: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

The Young Americans Summer Camp Tour will be traveling across the U.S. during the months of May, June, July, and August. A cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages all around the world. Our camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as a people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

Throughout the week, campers spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group as well as fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, acting, and performance. Additionally, the camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, and learn an incredible 1-hour variety show!

CLICK HERE: Meet the Current Cast

(We currently have 3 MSHS Graduates in the cast: Michael Kresnak, Hannah Kuipers and Gabrielle Gripton!)

Our Summer Camp Includes:

  • Duration: Our 5 days of camp feature 35+ hours of instruction with an instructor to student ration between 5:1 and 3:1. Students spend the first four days learning their show and taking classes. On the final day, students perform the 1-hour variety show they learned. The show day also features a special performance by The Young Americans as a ‘thank you’ for letting us be part of your community for the week.

  • The Show: Each camp culminates in a 2-hour performance for the community. We use music and the show as a tool to inspire teamwork, self-confidence, leadership, and growth within the performing arts.

  • The Camp: This high-energy, comprehensive performing arts camp covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more.

  • Classes, Self-Confidence, & Leadership: In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, song writing, and performance (acting and improv). Every class uses techniques that emphasize individuality and leadership.

  • Cultural Exchange: The Young Americans represent over 35 states throughout the U.S. and 20 countries across the world. Participants have time to ask questions and interact will our international performers to create a unique cultural exchange.

  • Bring Schools Together: A majority of the schools we work with invite schools within a large radius to come participate in the workshop event. Similar to a band/choir invitational, it’s a great way promote cross-school relationships.

    We are also going to be housing the Young Americans here in Muskegon. You can say $50 off your registration fee if you choose to homestay. You can sign up to be a homestay family when you register!

NEW! Hey Choir! The fundraiser this week did not give us enough money to get gifts for the ten people who have put in countless hours of unpaid work for our benefit. I’m extending the fundraiser for a day because they deserve to be recognized, and I know we can do better than last week showed.

If everyone gave just a few dollars, we would have plenty of money to buy them nice gifts.

PLEASE give a little bit!

Thanks, Kara

NEW! Hi, everyone! As many of you probably noticed, I watched last night’s specialty acts and made a few comments about them. They will be handed to the leader of each group. If you have any questions at all, you can text/call me at (231)955-7591. I will be available and in Muskegon all day today (Tuesday) if anyone wants me to give them some more feedback in person.

These comments are my opinion only. You may do with it as you wish. If you need any clarifications about any of my comments, please don’t hesitate to text me. Thanks for letting me watch your acts! Great job! This year’s show will be fantastic. (:

REMINDER! It’s official! We have once again been chosen to be one of the 22 locations across the USA where the Young Americans will be offering their summer music camp, July 11-15, 2017!

CLICK HERE: CLICK HERE TO REGISTER!

The Young Americans Summer Camp Tour will be traveling across the U.S. during the months of May, June, July, and August. A cast of 30+ Young Americans, ages 18-24, will be the instructors for every camp. Our instructors have experience teaching kids and adults in many languages all around the world. Our camps are an awesome opportunity for students to grow as a people and performers. Students of all experience levels are encouraged to join.

Throughout the week, campers spend time learning an hour show geared for their respective age group as well as fun and interactive classes in singing, dancing, acting, and performance. Additionally, the camp offers a unique experience to gain self-confidence, make new friends, and learn an incredible 1-hour variety show!

CLICK HERE: Meet the Current Cast

(We currently have 3 MSHS Graduates in the cast: Michael Kresnak, Hannah Kuipers and Gabrielle Gripton!)

Our Summer Camp Includes:

  • Duration: Our 5 days of camp feature 35+ hours of instruction with an instructor to student ration between 5:1 and 3:1. Students spend the first four days learning their show and taking classes. On the final day, students perform the 1-hour variety show they learned. The show day also features a special performance by The Young Americans as a ‘thank you’ for letting us be part of your community for the week.

  • The Show: Each camp culminates in a 2-hour performance for the community. We use music and the show as a tool to inspire teamwork, self-confidence, leadership, and growth within the performing arts.

  • The Camp: This high-energy, comprehensive performing arts camp covers everything from vocal techniques, dance, and comedy improvisation, to stage movement, sound, lighting, and more.

  • Classes, Self-Confidence, & Leadership: In addition, the students will take classes in the areas of voice, dance, song writing, and performance (acting and improv). Every class uses techniques that emphasize individuality and leadership.

  • Cultural Exchange: The Young Americans represent over 35 states throughout the U.S. and 20 countries across the world. Participants have time to ask questions and interact will our international performers to create a unique cultural exchange.

  • Bring Schools Together: A majority of the schools we work with invite schools within a large radius to come participate in the workshop event. Similar to a band/choir invitational, it’s a great way promote cross-school relationships.

    We are also going to be housing the Young Americans here in Muskegon. You can say $50 off your registration fee if you choose to homestay. You can sign up to be a homestay family when you register!
